Grants (subsidies) for private sector investment in developing countries are available from a variety of sources for a diverse range of purposes. Grants typically cover only part of a project budget and require a substantial cash and/or in-kind contribution by the promoters. In case of development banks, grants are often tied and subject to their provision of a loan.


Grants are generally not available for “business as usual” but for “unusual business”. Grant programmes typically target innovative and scalable projects with a high potential payoff in terms of the programme’s specific developmental objectives. Grant programmes are generally organised as competitions that attract far more entries than can be funded - we help you develop a winning proposal! Refer to our project page for examples of projects in developing countries where we have successfully raised grant financing. 


Grant funding is of course financially most attractive but comes with strict performance, reporting and accountability conditions. We provide support to help you comply with these requirements.


We have first-hand knowledge of grant programmes that may apply to your case. Only a selection of grant programmes is presented on our website. There is much more out there!
